TRAFFIC ALERT UPDATE: Jacobsen Road reopens after 12-hour tree closure

7:14 AM: Thanks for the texts! That tree is blocking Jacobsen Road (map) right now, so if you’re trying to get to/from Beach Drive, you’ll have to take a different route. We hope it has been reported already – if not, 911 is appropriate for something blocking a road, and/or the 24-hour SDOT dispatch center, 206-386-1218.

12:30 PM: Still closed at last report – please let us know if you find otherwise. Apparently wires are involved and so City Light was involved as well as a SDOT tree crew.

5:58 PM: As noted in commenters, crews arrived around 3:30 pm. Apparently there is a major incident up north that kept them busy. We took this photo around 5 pm:

Our photographer is going back shortly to check again.

7:03 PM: It wasn’t open when we looked again around 6:30 but commenters say it is now. Thanks for the updates!

    The tree guys are making quick work of the tree on Jacobsen. They arrived about half an hour ago.

      Thank you – we went by one more time about 20 minutes ago and it looked *almost* open – appreciate the updates!

    This is a dangerous road. There are at least 12-15 trees just ready to fall . When I drive up or down it,   I say a ‘Hail Mary’ !!  

Sorry, comment time is over.
